Skill Level Easy

Ingredients List

Serves 2
  • 400 g spaghetti
  • 1 splash extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 medium tomatoes (diced)
  • 2 cloves garlic (chopped)
  • 1 handful olives pitted, black
  • 1 tbsp capers
  • 1 pinch salt (to season, if required)
  • dried oregano


  1. Cook the spaghetti first. Two minutes before it is ready, prepare the sauce.
  2. Heat the pan first and add the tomatoes and garlic stirring for about one minute, then add the olives, capers and herbs and spices.
  3. Drain the spaghetti and toss in the pan and serve with crusty bread.
  4. Season with salt and plenty of black pepper then add a splash of olive oil to the sauce at the end for umami flavours.

Add anchovies and a tin of tuna (in brine) for a fishy flavour or if you’re vegan, dried seaweed.

You can substitute the fresh tomatoes for tinned.
